「いただきます」の使い方

 

I know that this word is always used before starting to eat something. However, I've also heard in many J-dramas that this word is used in a formal way while receiving something from someone (or something like that). Can you please tell me in what kind of other situations this word can be used other than saying this before eating something?
ありがとうございます。

    It could be used as in helping yourself to something, for example

    「私のうちにくる?」
    "Watashi no uchi ni kuru?"
    「今は他の用件で忙しいのでちょっと無理かな。。もし良かったらあとでもよろしいですか?」
    "Ima wa hoka no youken de isogashii no de chotto muri kana.. moshi yokattara ato demo yoroshii desuka?"
    「はい、ぜんぜん大丈夫です!」
    "hai, zenzen daijoubu desu!"
    「では、お言葉に甘えて。そうしていただきます!」
    "deha, okotoba ni amaete. sou shite itadakimasu!"

    You could say it when you receive a gift, or if you take something to make it yours. Eg, you can choose between many things, and you say "I'll pick this one!" 「これ、いただきます!」
